Engineering Education (EngEd)


What is the EngEd?

The Collaborative Specialization in Engineering Education is an interdisciplinary initiative designed for students within home programs in engineering or education who are interested in pursuing courses and research in engineering education. This opportunity allows students to join a small community of scholars interested in research and learning at the nexus of education and engineering practice. Upon successful completion of the requirements of the home department and the specialization, students receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Specialization in Engineering Education” on their transcript.

What courses do I take?

A core course provides students with an introduction to engineering learning, knowledge, assessment, and culture and community, while the theoretical foundations, methods, and topics related to engineering education research are explored in a seminar course.

How does the research work?

Research is supervised by a graduate faculty member in a home department (see below for participating degrees, departments and faculty). Opportunities exist to assess and apply research findings as part of instructional initiatives within the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.
